The Ford Trimotor aircraft model is completely hand-built & handcrafted of flat & corrugated aluminum metal sheet attached to a lightweight wooden frame. Size: 26.4" length x 40" wingspan x 7.75" height (15" on stand). Material: Aluminum, wood & rubber. Includes: Solid cast aluminum stand. (also variously identified as the "Tri-Motor", and nicknamed "The Tin Goose") was an American three engine civil transport aircraft first produced in 1925 by Henry Ford and continued in production until June 7, 1933.
Throughout its lifespan a total of 199 aircraft were produced. Unlike his famous Ford Model T cars, trucks and farm tractors, Ford did not make the engines for these aircraft.
The Ford Trimotors used an all-metal construction not a revolutionary concept, but certainly more advanced than the standard construction techniques in the 1920s. The aircraft resembled the Fokker F. VII but it was all metal allowing Ford to claim it was the safest airliner around. Its fuselage and wings were constructed of aluminum and corrugated for added strength although the drag reduced overall performance. Transcontinental Air Transport, which later became part of Trans World Airlines, used the aircraft to begin its transcontinental air service from San Diego to New York in 1929.
Ford Trimotors were also used extensively by Pan American Airlines , extending service from North America into Central and South America during the same period. The article "Ford Trimotor" is part of the Wikipedia encyclopedia. More Fully Built Airplane & Aircraft Models Are Available.
